My daughter committed suicide after being diagnosed with bipolar disorder and mixed personality disorder. She was in and out of doctors care for depression and mental issues for about 15 years. She suffered with bulimia, cutting disorder and lastly self medicating before her first attempt at suicide in May 2015.
She was in treatment for about 10 days and came home with a new bunch of psychotic drugs that only seemed to make her worse. She lost her job because she could no longer function effectively! She suffered with depression, multiple panic attacks and extreme anxiety for years that only worsened with age. She lost her struggle on January 27, 2016 because she could no longer deal with life.
The mental health system here in our area is almost nonexistent. We have no psychiatrist and a handful of psychologists that are hard to get in to see. There is very little help available and no one wants to address this issue. I would like to bring awareness and more help to our part of the country. The stigmatization here is ridiculous and has to be stopped if things are going to change. Nobody wants to admit their loved ones need help and that results in dysfunction and suicide for many!!
Please help me change things with the help of this organization. I pray no family has to suffer this grief as we have had to endure. My daughter was a lovely and brilliant girl that needed help but was failed by the system. She would have been 30 years old 9 days after her death. STOP THIS DISGRACE!!!
